    I have created this thread so if you have anything you want to discuss or banter about on the tropical side of things. This way we don’t clutter up the main hurricane forum. Please make us of this.

    New visitors to the forum might find this explanation of the NHC's forecast cone to be educational:

    The 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is a good time to remember the importance of first responders in all of our lives. Thousands of first responders will be risking life and limb on a huge scale this week assisting the public as trees are uprooted, power lines fall, and flood waters rise.

    I understand we don’t want the main Florence thread cluttered with banter but I fell like a few shots here or there give the discussion some character. Just my two pennies

    I don't completely disagree but we've found before if you don't have a cross the board "policy" then when you start allowing some and not others, you get complaints. Heck you allow it you get complaints, you remove it you get complaints.... trust me we can't win. Lol

    Women... they can’t ever make up their minds, if this was hurricane Fred he would just move in a straight line and die off once he got tired.

    The models are just as bad with hurricane threats to NC as they are with winter storm threats.

    The great JB says he isn’t buying the 12z Euro. He says he may change his forecast IF a day out the Euro looks right. That makes me feel confident

    That makes me feel a little better too, but honestly not by much. I'm smack between Chapel Hill and Sanford and watching the projected total QPFs from the stall the last few days... I don't trust this area when a gnat sneezes, nevermind a major hurricane that might stall out.

    Off subject, but do you long time (and newer time, I'm sorry I'll newish here) members ever plan meet ups or anything? Being in central NC I know there's quite a few of you around, and it'd be rad to make friends with other weenies/mets offline as I progress through school!

    My post was meant as sarcasm. I trust very little of what JB puts out and his comments don’t make me feel better at this time...

    In the 5pm advisory, anyone else catch where they acknowledge the shifts of the GFS and UKMET, then when they get to the Euro they give it credence up to 72hrs then move right on to something else?
